The department in brief
The Department of Energy and Process Engineering (EPT), a part of the Faculty for Engineering Science and Technology, is organized into five sub divisions — or research groups — for both teaching and research purposes:
- Thermal Energy
- Industrial Process Technology
- Energy and Indoor Environment
- Fluids Engineering
- Industrial Ecology
A glimpse into our activities
The Department of Energy and Process Engineering has a total of 150 employees, including approx. 80 doctoral students (PhD). We have an extensive contact network, and graduates from our master's programmes are employed by both industry and public administration. Our research is applied to both offshore and onshore industry, by consulting companies, energy advisory services, engineering companies, and public administration.
An innovation resource
Our business concept is to develop and communicate knowledge, thus contributing to the improvement of, and adding value to, society. Our goal is to be a premise provider to public officials and an innovation resource for Norwegian industry in our scientific fields. By ensuring that both Norwegian industry and the public sector has access to our experts and competencies, we can contribute to solving many of the important issues that face our society today.

Centre for Renewable Energy
Research includes these fields: wave generated energy, small scale hydroelectric power, wind power, solar energy, bioenergy, as well as energy generated from waste, hydrogen, salt and heat pumps. The Centre for Renewable Energy is owned by NTNU, SINTEF, IFE and UiO. Website: http://www.sffe.no/
Industry contact organization
Together with Norwegian industrial actors, the master's programme Mechanical Engineering (PUP) hav established the "PUP industry roundtable" (Industriringen PuP ), to foster collaboration and create an arena for contact between industry members and students. The organization also seeks to ensure the quality and relevence of the master's programme.
